Galpin On Road Seminar - Sept 30 to Oct 2, 2011

From Jim Johnson

I have stayed at this campground.  The cabins are Spartan, but dry.  Two single beds and enough room for your luggage, one light and not outlets.  They used to serve a cooked breakfast on the grounds that was pretty good.  The campground is within spitting distance (a few miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway.)  I have taken Susan’s course with Stan.  We learned a lot about riding in the right gear.  As a result, both of us are better on the curves.

Pass this along to anyone you think might be interested.  I will go again, if I can.

Subject: Galpin On Road Seminar Coming Soon / Info You Need

Dave Cwi here, writing on behalf of Susan Galpin.  In the past you've attended on expressed interest in  attending one of Susan's Conquer Corners Before They Conquer You! seminars.    So the upcoming opportunity may be of interest.   More than just an updated seminar.  You also receive on-road coaching and we've plotted out great riding day rides in the Smokies where you can try out your new skills.  

Raider Sport Touring will be hosting our Octoberfest Ride the Weekend of Sept 30 - Oct 2.   ATTENDANCE IS LIMITED and we will be based out the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground in Cruso, NC.   You are on your own to rent a furnished cabin with linens or pop a tent!

Everyone taking Susan's seminar comments that her techniques transform them so they become more confident riders. The first coaching session will be Friday afternoon September 30.   Next two sessions:  morning and afternoon  Saturday October 1st.
Susan as you know is techno challenged so we are acting as her secretary for this event; but feel free to contact her directly at   She'll be leading 3 groups in 4 hour sessions that begin with her great seminar.  You'll then test what you've learned on roads selected by Susan just for this event.  She'll ride with you providing comments that improve your ability to ride Corner Quick.

We will pass the hat among attendees so bring a $20 bill as we want to cover Susan's expenses.  That's it. 

If you are willing to share a cabin we can pair you up with others and you call the campground directly and give them your credit card.

Are you interested in attending?  Please contact to get in touch and to get on the official list.
